Peyton in Paris

 Peyton in Paris
by Candy Prather
20"x16" oil on canvas

Peyton in Paris is a storybook style commission. The intention was to portray the couple's daughter in a Paris setting as an animated layout. This was my first undertaking in storybook style painting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My client sent a few photos of Peyton and I combined two of them to create her stance. I found the background of Paris in a photo from Google Images, then as I was finishing up the composition I added the flower pot and tree limbs to help portray the springtime season effect. The kind gentleman who commissioned me to paint his daughter in Paris was a pleasure to work with. He presented Peyton in Paris to his wife as a 20th wedding anniversary gift. Let me know what you think!
